Daily Horoscope for May 19, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino
If Today is Your Birthday
To feel better, focus your healing where your emotions meet your physical body. There's more than just a deep connection; they are one and the same. Releasing toxic emotions will give you energy, nourish and strengthen your body, and your mood will be better. You're the only person responsible for this process -- or capable of doing it. You share a birthday with Malcolm X, Grace Jones and Jodi Picoult.
Aries (March 20-April 19) -- You have a rare opportunity to pull a thorn out of your self-esteem. If something is bothering you but you don't know what, figure it out. It may take an hour; it may take all day -- though there's a reward, which is resolving something that's been eating at your confidence. Get instant access to your Aries reading!

Taurus (April 19-May 20) -- You must be bigger than anyone's opinions about you and never let public opinion sway you to violate your conscience. Usually this kind of thing is a nonstarter; you're a strong person. Today you may need to make a conscious choice to let something roll off your back. Get instant access to your Taurus reading.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) -- Steer clear of higher-ups, bosses and other authority figures if they seem to be in a foul mood. You don't want to take the blame for someone else's actions, which is a distinct possibility. Stay out of arguments and power struggles; you have more creative things on your mind.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -- If you're feeling guilty about something, or like you're supposed to assume responsibility for others' choices, there's probably a specific cause that you can identify. It's not your job to process or take on the emotions of others, even though you find yourself in this role fairly often.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) -- If you find yourself in a financial discussion today, listen to what people are saying, and put it off until Monday. By then, you'll have figured out the truth of the matter, which is different from what you're currently being told. The alternative facts will not stand up to the real ones.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) -- Make sure you're not accepting the blame for someone else's feelings. It's entirely too easy for this to happen to you, and it's become an increasingly frequent phenomenon. You're the only person who can stop it. If someone gives you something that's not yours, hand it right back to them.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) -- A stunning meeting between Venus and Jupiter today is encouraging you to be at your very best, and to call out the best in others. Make no compromises of quality or personal integrity, and insist that others fulfill their commitments to you. Such will serve everyone's best interests.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) -- Pleasure is both a source of nourishment and a place for healing. This counts for both erotic exploration and creative endeavors. You need freedom to explore what you're feeling. You need a clean, well-lighted place -- not a box or a leash. You're free and so are the people you love.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) -- Stay connected to your deepest feelings. You might want others to give you plenty of space so you can do that, and if so, don't be afraid to ask for it, or just take it for yourself. You don't owe anyone an explanation for how you feel or what you need to do about it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -- Keep your emotional filters on; don't let others provoke you or get under your skin. This may take some work, as relatives really know how to get to people. However, you need to be the bigger and more mature person and see these games for what they are, which (in a word) is useless.
Aquarius Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Take full responsibility for what's yours today, and leave the rest to others. If you've done something wrong, step up and make it right. That will leave you free to release yourself from what's not your doing or your creation. As an Aquarius, you must always keep this distinction in mind. Eric recently completed your Aquarius reading.

Pisces Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- If a financial offer or business opportunity comes in today, it's likely to be the one you were waiting for. Don't let any personal misgivings, fear or insecurity stand in your way. You have earned your place in the world, and there are indeed times when good things happen to good people.
